My Birthday in Galilee

My 22nd birthday was celebrated in Galilee. We went to Hazor, one of the few cities whose archeological evidence supports the Bible narrative, Caesarea Philippi, where Peter declared, "Thou art the Christ, Son of the Living God" (Matthew 16:16), and Nimrod's Castle, a Crusader fortress.

Me & Professor Jackson at Hazor

Caesarea Philippi: Check out your LDS Bible Dictionary, Bible photo #26

Love this sign :)
Nimrod's Castle--reminds me of my childhood, visiting all of the castles throughout Europe!

Shaleigh Smith & Sarah Bradshaw made sure
to give me 22 birthday kisses
After the attack



All in all, it was a pretty spectacular birthday.

Love,

Mark

That's mahhh boi! haha Glad that you had a wonderful 22nd bday (too bad it wasn't more, huh??!! haha) Love you! :-)
